Memorial Day in Long Beach

Memorial Day weekend is May 27th-May 29th and it’s the time of the year that we stop and remember all those who lost their lives fighting for our freedom and our country.

These are family and friends, but they are also our neighbors and colleagues.

There will be many Memorial Day events in Long Beach to attend or you may have your own plans and visits scheduled to the cemetery for a graveside remembrance service.

Whatever you plan on doing, think of our Long Beach flower shop for any wreaths, flower baskets, or bouquets that you would want to get or send to others this Memorial Day.

Here are some examples of our patriotic flowers:

  • Old Glory represents the American flag and illustrates everything that is involved in being a patriot. It’s a stunning and respectful standing wreath spray to display this Memorial Day.
  • Patriotic Standing spray includes an array of red, white, and blue flowers that show your pride and remembrance of those lost.
  • The Patriot includes Fuji mums, carnations, snapdragons and delphinium along with greenery and ribbon.
  • A Patriotic Salute also includes all types of flowers that represent our nation’s colors and reflects your patriotic pride.

You can also work directly with our Long Beach flower shop design team on custom Memorial Day flowers or custom Memorial Day wreaths. Just call and make your appointment today. You can also place your Memorial Day orders by phone, in our Long Beach flower shop, or online through our website.
